Novelist Vernon to read at DWC

A reading by novelist John Vernon at 7 p.m. Friday, March 27 at the Downtown Writer's Center.

In recent praise for John Vernon's novels, Michael Upchurch of the Seattle Times wrote, "If we're living in a golden age for the historical novel -- and I believe we are -- then one of the genre's most gifted practitioners is American writer John Vernon."

Vernon will read at the DWC in support of his latest novel, Lucky Billy, in which Vernon humanizes America's most infamous anti-hero, finding a truth more remarkable than legend.

John Vernon is the author of 11 books, including the book of poems Ann, the memoir A Book of Reasons, and the novels La Salle, Lindbergh's Son, Peter Doyle, All for Love: Baby Doe and Silver Dollar, The Last Canyon,

and now, Lucky Billy.

This event is free and open to the public. Call 474-3851 x 328 for further details.
